3 3 International Business Administration at Radboud University What is international business really all about? How do you keep your staff motivated and your shareholders happy? How do corporate cultures differ from country to county? These are all questions that will be answered during the English-taught degree programme International Business Administration. Change perspective International Business Administration (IBA) is not a vocational training programme. Yes, it is an excellent foundation for running an international company, but it is also so much more. We challenge you to change your perspective and discover what this field truly encompasses. IBA is the English-taught Bachelor s track of our Business Administration degree programme. You will learn all aspects of international business and the role culture and communication play in this. You will look at how companies are organised, how they manage internal and external change and where business operations can be improved. You will discover that there is no one size fits all solution for doing business: what works well for one company may prove disastrous for another. At Radboud University we are convinced that a broad perspective leads to new and fascinating insights. This degree programme is a good example of this. We will examine companies from various perspectives and incorporate material from the social sciences, such as Psychology and Communication Science. After all, business is also about people. A company, for instance, must win the trust of clients and investors. Motivated employees are the key for many successful businesses. You will study the interaction between all parties, such as managers, employees, shareholders and clients. This kind of interaction is even more complex and interesting on the inter national level. By devoting attention to the role of language and culture you will learn how to constantly adapt your perspective. All of this will train you to become a business administrator skilled at analysing complex business processes and offering advice on the matter. With this broad, critical approach you will soon be able to make your own impact on how people view international business and the field of Business Administration. International and English-taught Your academic training will have a great deal of emphasis on research skills, focusing ample attention on real-life scenarios. During the lectures you will frequently receive case studies and be asked to reflect on the improvements that can be made to these. International Business Administration is an inter national degree programme, and we deliver on this promise. The programme is taught in English, and requires excellent English language proficiency. You will encounter many students from abroad, and you will spend six months abroad to do an internship or study in your third year. Characteristics of the Radboud degree programme International Business Administration: English-taught Thorough training in research methods Ample attention for real-life scenarios Six months of study or internship abroad Easily accessible, personal contact between students and lecturers nijmegen
4 4 The campus and student life The faculty The IBA programme is part of the Nijmegen School of Management (NSM). NSM is a knowledge centre in the field of management for companies, nonprofit organisations and governments. We have brought together seven scientific fields: Business Admini stration, Economics and Business Economics, Public Administration, Political Science, Human Geography, Spatial Planning and Social and Political Sciences of the Environment. Excellent facilities NSM offers excellent study facilities and a large number of workstations and computers. The Study and Resource Centre provides all you need to complete assignments individually or in groups. In the Logg-Inn, you can study in silence with the study books and exam literature at your fingertips. Other academic literature is found in the Central University Library only a few minutes walk away. Free wireless internet is available throughout the campus, accessible on your own laptop, tablet, and cell phone via your student account. With your student account, you can also log on to our digital learning environment: the Student Portal. In the Student Portal, you have a handy overview of your student inbox and your registrations for courses and exams, and you can easily order study books. Furthermore, the portal gives you access to our course information system Blackboard, which you can use to communicate with lecturers and fellow students, or to find lecture slides and assignments. Blackboard is accessible from any computer with an internet connection, also from home. On the one square kilometre campus you will find all university facilities, such as lecture rooms, research labs, libraries, student organisations, restaurants and cafés, the university hospital, the student chaplaincy, a book shop and a modern sports centre. Our campus is the greenest in the Netherlands, providing you the opportunity to study outside and enjoy nice weather during summers at the same time. In addition, as a member of the university sports centre, you can choose between seventy different sports for under ten euros a month! For those who want to learn Dutch or another language, our university language centre Radboud in to Languages has a wide range of options. The Student Chaplaincy is a centre where students and staff can meet, meditate, take part in discussions, or join in worship. Student life Your student life starts with finding student accommodation in Nijmegen. There are two main types of student accommodation: public student accommodation (offered by the SSHN, Stichting Studenten huis vesting Nijmegen) is located on and near the campus mainly, private student accommodation is offered by commercial landlords or companies in the city-centre. Dutch students can apply for public student accommodation depending on their own preferences. Non-Dutch students who applied before the deadline are offered SSHN student accommodation, which will be a furnished, individual room, about twelve to fourteen square metres, and including a sink. Facilities such as the kitchen, Semester abroad In order to provide you with more experience abroad and to sharpen your international perspective, you will study abroad for six months during the first semester of the third year. It is possible to take courses of your choice from a selection of partner universities. Radboud University currently has colla boration agreements with more than a hundred universities all over the world (see page 13 for more information).
5 5 bathroom, and toilet are shared with ten to twelve others. A public dorm costs about 350 to 450 per month. Student accommodation on or near campus is just a ten-minute bike ride from the city-centre, so you are not too far away from an enjoyable evening out! The city of Nijmegen Nijmegen was founded by the Romans over twothousand years ago. Although you will not find much remaining of those times, there are still picturesque medieval buildings to please the eye. Nowadays, Nijmegen has about 170,000 inhabitants, of which about 25 per cent are students. The students are the basis for a lively city-centre, which has something to offer almost 24 hours a day. Nijmegen, the city with the highest number of terraces per inhabitant of all cities in the Netherlands, has loads of shops, restaurants and bars, which cater to your needs and almost all have discounts for students. Student budget You should take into account an average monthly budget of about 900. The exact budget depends on factors such as the rent of your dorm and your personal lifestyle. The average budget breaks down into: rent of the student accommodation ( 400), food and living expenses ( 150), tuition fee ( 150), study books and literature ( 50), insurance ( 90), and contingencies, such as travel expenses, phone bill, etc. ( 60). This budget is based on the situation of students from the EU and EEA countries (including Switzerland), who face the legal tuition fee of 1,906 (academic year ). Students from other countries may face the institutional tuition fee of 6,994 (academic year ) and additional expenses for visa (a one-time 300).

6 6 The educational system The programme outline The Bachelor s programme in International Business Administration takes three years to complete, after which you can apply for a one-year Master s programme. The first year provides an introduction to the field, during which the courses have been carefully selected to provide you with a basis for the following years. During the second and third years, you will delve further into the key subjects of Business Administration. In addition, you will pay special attention to cross-cultural management and com munication, since the programme is internationally oriented. After successfully completing the Bachelor s thesis, you will receive the degree Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, stating that you have participated in the Englishtaught IBA track. Studying in small groups As an IBA student you will experience our personal approach to education. We believe in small-scale teaching and individual supervision. Besides attending lectures, you will be taught in seminars of about 15 to 25 students. As a result, many hours (a minimum of 15 hours a week, in addition to about 25 hours of self-study) can be spent in class with fellow students and lecturers, ensuring active participation and frequent contact with your classmates. After all, in the future you will work in a team together with colleagues. By taking part in discussions on relevant topics, you will be well- prepared for your lectures and exams. Working together on projects During your studies, you will carry out projects together with fellow students. You can choose a topic of interest from within a specific field. Using the knowledge and skills acquired, you will conduct research in groups of three or four students under close supervision. You will collect and process data on your own, discuss results and interpretations with team members, and learn to work together. At the end of each project your research findings will be presented during a final joint session. Switching to another study If you discover that IBA is not entirely what you had in mind, it is usually possible to switch to another programme within the faculty during the first three months of your studies, without too much study delay. Please note that with the exception of the International Economics & Business programme, which is part of the Bachelor s programme Economics and Business Economics, all other Bachelor s programmes at the Nijmegen School of Management are taught in Dutch. The study advisor can counsel you regarding the available possibilities to help you make the best choice.
7 7 Courses First-year courses Introduction to Business Administration This course gives you an introduction to the theory and practice of business administration. The NSM is characterised by a broad and integrated vision towards business administration through a social scientific approach to organisations. The focus is on social and change processes in organisations, and on problem solving. Methods of Research and Intervention This course introduces the tools scientists use when conducting research (methods of research). During the course, possible solutions to organisational problems (methods of intervention) are also recommended. Academic Skills This is a practical course given to groups of 15 students at a time and is intended to help you acquire the skills you need to complete your academic studies successfully. For instance, you will be taught to reason and argue scientifically. You will collect and structure scientific information which you will then present orally or in writing. Introduction to Business Communication This course teaches you the core concepts and theories of business communication while focusing on ICT applications. You will learn more about analysing business communication problems and about instructive and persuasive texts as well as intercultural communication. In addition, actual cases of governmental and intercultural communication will be studied. Organisation Theory This consists of an introduction to organisation theory, with due attention paid to its origins, main themes, and further theoretical development. Cross-Cultural Management International managers are confronted with dilemmas related to the seemingly conflicting demands caused by differences in cultural values around the globe. This course demonstrates that the challenge in international management is to use the power of cultural diversity to find better solutions for these dilemmas than can be found by using single cultural perspectives. Accounting The focus of this course is on the financial and administrative aspects of organisations, in particular those of enterprises. Subjects such as management accounting and control, accounting information systems and financial reporting are dealt with. Karoline Heitmann Student International Business Administration I chose to study International Business Administration in Nijmegen because it offers a very unique learning environment. Due to the fact that the study programme is very exclusive and small, every student is highly valued and we enjoy a close relationship with professors, our study advisor, and of course our fellow students. IBA incorporates a social perspective on business and places a strong focus on working in an international environment. For instance, how do you work with someone who prefers flexible short-term goals and authoritarian management if you come from a collective culture that prefers long-term planning and less uncertainty? IBA teaches you how to combine different cultures effectively through synergy, which is an essential tool in today s globalised and crosscultural world. Since the international semester in the third year is compulsory, students receive ample support from their advisors in finding an interesting exchange university. I am already looking forward to that experience.
8 8 International Business Ethics This course will teach you to view the ethical aspects of organisations from a philosophical perspective. You will gain insight into the role ethics plays in processes of international organisations and how to apply ethical theories to moral dilemmas found in the business world. Statistics This course links basic elements from descriptive and inferential statistics to business administration research. It prepares you for doing the research projects later during the programme and for the other research-oriented courses (e.g. Quantitative Research). Project: Learning Organisation In the project you apply the acquired knowledge of the first year to questions about the learning organisation. You will deal with research questions such as: Which factors improve or hamper learning in teams? and To what extent do organisational routines promote organisational learning? Besides obtaining theoretical knowledge, you will write a research proposal combining the knowledge and skills learned. Second-year courses Strategic Human Resource Management Students will get an overview of human resource practices in modern organisations. The course uses modern theories and concepts of human resource management (HRM) especially regarding the relation ship between strategy and HRM, the added value of HRM, and performance. Corporate Finance During this course you will develop skills and acquire knowledge concerning investments, risk management and project financing. Qualitative Research Methods This course deals with qualitative research methods to study organisational processes. You will conduct open interviews, observations and content analysis. Additionally you will learn how to adequately analyse qualitative data. Organisational Culture & Communication The course links culture and communication, and explains why intercultural management has become so salient. The impact of cross-cultural values on business communication and management practices is shown along with the effects of cultural diffe rences on organisational structure, human resource management, and negotiation. Introduction to Organisation Design This course addresses organisational design and job design. In the course you learn more about systems theory and the socio-technical approach and their application in real-life cases. Strategy The most important matters in the strategy of an organisation are its vision, the organisational distribution of resources and the development of characteristics that promote the successful operation of the organisation in the future. Various perspectives on the process, content and context of organisational strategy are considered in the course. Quantitative Research Methods This course builds further on the course statistics and teaches, among other things, methods and techniques that can be used to describe and analyse consumer behaviour and organisational strategies. Business Analysis for Responsible Organisations Students gain knowledge of system dynamics and how to apply and reflect on this field as an analysis method to support decision-making in complex, multi-value managerial situations. The strategic decisions which are dealt with, typically address messy problems that are complex in an analytical (many interrelated variables), dynamic (many changes over time), and social sense (many different viewpoints on what the problem is).
9 9 Marketing Marketing will focus on the delivery of customer value through customer relationships. The marketing mix (product, price, promotion and place) provides a comprehensive view of the marketing offer to the customer. Organisation and Environment The goal of the course is to understand the fundamental management theories that are the basis of specific approaches to management and organisation. A variety of fundamental management theories are studied. To become knowledgeable about this field, it is necessary to understand these approaches and their origin, to learn to position them against each other within a time frame, to be able to critique them, and apply them to practical questions. Third-year courses International Semester During the international semester, you will be studying at one of our partner universities for which you will be free to compose your own programme. You may want to take up a different discipline or further specialise in management and organisation related topics. You may also combine your study at a foreign university with an internship at an inter national organisation (for a maximum of 12 ECs). Your proposed foreign university programme as well as the internship assignment has to be approved by the examination board. International Management In this course the development of strategy in the Multinational Corporation (MNC) is examined. Additionally, the organisational capabilities, required to deliver the MNC s strategic imperatives are discussed as well as the management challenges of operating a successful MNC.
10 10 Intervention Methodology This course focuses on methodologies for inter vention in organisations. Interventions may concern one or more phases of the intervention cycle (diagnosis, design, change and evaluation). The process of intervention is the main topic of the course. Which methodologies are available in a particular phase? How can we make a well-considered choice from these methodologies and what results can we expect from the use of specific intervention methodologies? Leadership in Organisations In this multidisciplinary course, a team of lecturers offers an overview of existing theories and models on the concept of leadership in contemporary organisations and their different perspectives. This course aims to expand your insight into the meaning of leadership of organisations and employees and come to a better understanding of the effects of leadership on daily work practices. In that sense, the course will not only discuss theoretical insights, but will also focus on the practice of management and leadership in organisations and what problems managers and leaders face and how these problems can be solved. Bachelor s Thesis The Bachelor s programme is concluded by writing a Bachelor s thesis, during which you independently and creatively apply the knowledge, insights, and skills you have acquired to a relevant scientific research topic of your choice. A lecturer will super vise you and the final result will be presented and defended in front of your fellow students.

13 13 Study abroad During the first semester of the third year, you will study at a partner university outside the Netherlands or combine this with an internship at an international organisation. This period is ideal for identifying a specialisation as you will have the opportunity to delve into a topic of your choice. If you already know which Master s you would like to enrol in after your Bachelor s programme, the courses at the partner university abroad can be selected in such a way to optimally prepare yourself for your Master s specialisation. If you do not know yet what the specialisation of your choice is, you can choose any course that you like, from sociology and psychology to foreign languages and economics; everything is possible. You should bear in mind, however, that student enrolment in courses could be restricted at these universities, and that the selection will be based on your previous education, a letter of motivation and the composition of students enrolling in classes. Naturally, we would be more than happy to help you when choosing a foreign partner university and the courses you would like to take. We have collaboration agreements with more than a hundred foreign universities. For more information you can contact the International Mobility Office, T: +31 (0) E: Or visit
14 14 Master s programme The Bachelor's programme in International Business Administration prepares you for the Master s programme in Business Administration. It is also possible to enrol in a different Master s programme at Radboud University or to attend another Dutch or foreign university. Our Master s programme is full-time, intensive, English-taught and lasts one year. Within this time frame, you will delve into various theories and methods, write papers, deliver presentations, and comment upon research results and policy documents. Through this you will receive training in useful skills for your future career. During your study, close interaction will take place between you and your lecturers and, particularly, between you and your thesis supervisor. On obtaining your Master s diploma, you will have earned the degree of Master of Science in Business Administration (MSc). Master s programme in Business Administration The Master s programme in Business Administration at Nijmegen School of Management can be identified by its focus on Managing for Stakeholders, Responsible Decision Making, and Intervention and Change. It offers six Master s specialisations: International Management In this specialisation, international management problems are analysed as complex dilemmas that require managers and professionals to develop cross-cultural competencies to cope with adverse situations. This specialisation is concerned with the strategic, integrated approach and analysis of managerial aspects for multinational corporations in a globalising world. It takes a broad perspective on international management, paying attention to external and internal relations, communication and relation to society. This specialisation combines the strategic approach used by multinationals with the study of their organisational processes. It prepares you for a career as an international manager or international professional. Strategic Management The specialisation Strategic Management concentrates on strategic processes and the management of strategic processes in organisations. The emphasis is on attuning and adapting the organisation to the external environment, influencing that external environment and the consequences of these processes on the internal organisation. The central theme of the specialisation is the strategic collaboration within organisations and between organisations and the stakeholders to create multiple sustainable values in dynamic environments. Marketing The Marketing specialisation focuses on the develop ment and maintenance of relations with both existing and new customers in dynamic national and international markets. Such relations are becoming increasingly important for organisations because they help to improve long-term organisational results. After completing the programme, you will be able to answer questions such as: What exactly is a marketoriented organisation and how do we create such an organisation? Is it possible to establish relationships with customers using brands and if so, how? What is the role of market orientation in the development of truly innovative products? How do we develop the sales function for optimal results? What is the role of globalisation in the above issues?
15 15 Strategic Human Resource Management The importance of personnel management and organisation has grown from a reactive policy area with low strategic priority to a crucial factor for success. Personnel management has grown to become one of the most important strategic policy areas in modern organisations. The Master s specialisation SHRM analyses theories, policies and practices about modern strategic personnel issues in organisations. It takes into account the external institutional context and the internal context of quality of employment relations. SHRM deals with the increasing complexity and interrelatedness of societal and organisational issues, and proposes new ideas and concepts in order to contribute to solving these issues. Organisation Design and Development Interventions in organisational infrastructures define the key focus of the Master s specialisation Organisational Design & Development (OD&D). These interventions play a key role in establishing what organisations are and how they function, both internally and in their societal role. The mutual connection between how work is organised and the social practices that establish work organisation plays an essential role not only in the meaningful existence and persistence of organisations themselves, but also in the stability and adaptability of societies. Students in the OD&D programme will be trained to combine a fundamental research perspective with a more practical outlook on how to actually go about designing and developing organisations in a way that increases their chances of successfully achieving their their broad spectrum of goals. Business Analysis and Modelling The Master s specialisation Business Analysis and Modelling focuses on resolving complex and messy organisational problems by means of facilitated modelling. Business Analysis and Modelling deals with two aspects of managerial decision making: the individual and social biases and heuristics leading to suboptimal or even low quality decisions and interventions aimed at improving managerial decision making (Group decision support). Two elements are central in the programme: the use of computer simulation models to structure and visualise problems and the use of group processes to initiate strategic change. Students will be trained in analysing complex problems and will be provided with the facilitation skills needed to intervene effectively in decision making processes. Study association Synergy If your interest in business administra tion extends beyond your study programme, why not join Synergy, the study association for and by students of Business Administration and Inter natio nal Business Administration?

Daniela Patru from Romania Master s degree in Business Administration (Strategy) Current PhD candidate at Radboud University Nijmegen I earned a Bachelor s degree in Business Administration in Romania. When I decided to study abroad for my Master s degree, Radboud University s Strategy programme offered the sociallyoriented curriculum that appealed most to me. It addresses strategy from the perspective of the organisation as a social entity: a strategy that recognises the reality that strategic decisions are made and implemented by people with all their biases and foibles. Looking back, I have very fond memories of my studies in Nijmegen: an intensive, satisfying study programme, a research trip to Morocco and, of course, the biking experience. I couldn t ride a bike before coming to the Netherlands! I decided to stay in Nijmegen and I m currently a PhD candidate at Radboud University, researching care coordination in the healthcare sector. My Master s programme provided me with both the concep tual basis I needed and the qualitative and quantitative research skills I ll be using in my project. Furthermore, it taught me to think critically, which is a key element in any sub-field of business. My PhD project will take four years. Apart from reading and writing, there are also self-development courses to follow, classes to teach and conferences to attend.
